It was one of the things I tried to convince myself I wanted. I love the story line – even with all of it’s faults – but I never took the plunge in buying any of the earlier figures. Finally, I had a second chance at grabbing an Onslaught Build a Figure. I still am on the fence about the first release – which it is articulated like crazy it’s also very awkward. I am trying to look at the bright side as the best Onslaught figure is the 1997 offering… and that one is insanely high in price.
This new figure might be based off the new Red Skull character from the very disappointing AXIS event but that matters very little to me. I grabbed the classic head from Kitty Pride and I now have the Onslaught figure I’d been looking for! What do you guys think? Which is the best Onslaught figure?
Let’s have a little fun and discuss some of the more graphic, violent, sad, or just plain awkward moments that have plastered the Hulk history. Be it a passing meeting between spouses of a gruesome scene that nobody saw coming – this year I’ll have you squirming in your seat!
We’ll begin with one of the more unexpectedly grotesque moments that should stick in every Hulk reader’s minds. In Incredible Hulk #446, with Onslaught tearing through the MU and Hulk’s mind especially, the Hulk finally can’t take anymore. His body twists and contorts in such pain that he can no longer take it. He grabs the side of his face and tears it right from his skull!
If that’s not enough he’s also radiating so much heat, so much power, he singes the air so fierce that it burns the skin of a soldier named Webster watching from the sidelines. As he was aiming to take the Hulk out, he saw the horrific sight before him and was so nauseated he made the worst mistake of his life. He took off his helmet – and that was that.
While the artist was not my favorite, the over-exaggerating pencils of Angel Medina compliments this shocking scene so well it’s hard to forget after having seen it.
